My big order from the new Occasions Catalog came late last night so I finally have a multitude of new Stampin’ Up! products to play with! This new Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper is so beautiful in person and will make all kinds of fantastic cards and other projects. This Painted With Love All-Occasion Card can serve as a card for almost any occasion or a Valentine or birthday or anniversary or whatever you like.
The Heart Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set is one that we will be able to use in many ways with all the hearts! I decided to stamp this flowery heart in Melon Mambo, one of the coordinating colors with the designer paper. I die cut the flowery heart with one of the sizes in the Sweet & Sassy Framelits Dies and then cut a larger heart out of Gold Foil.
The card base is Melon Mambo and then the striped pattern is layered on the other pattern with a thin Gold Foil strip in between. The heart is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I could have added a greeting or more embellishment, but I just kind of liked it “plain and simple” like this. Now I can use the card for whatever I choose when I need it or still leave it plain and write my own message on the inside. It’s a good idea when you make a card similar to this Painted With Love All-Occasion Card to just leave it plain without a greeting, and then when you need a card, just stamp a greeting and add to the card.
